As stated by Albert Einstein, “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” This class will explore that physics topic and cover other bicycle topics in science and engineering. What was previously a “toy” to the students will be opened up and transformed into a “tool” and scientific marvel. The students will explore related STEM education paths and careers. In addition to directly growing their scientific knowledge, the course will engender lifelong learning skills as an out-of-school program applied to personally significant subject matter.
